Time for fun in the sun at Hampton Beach, N.H.

Rollicking Hampton Beach is full of noisy, kid-friendly, old-fashioned summer fun. Miles of white, sandy beaches are flanked by a 3-mile boardwalk, and lined with restaurants, takeout joints, ice cream stands, souvenir shops, arcades, and crowds. There are Wednesday night fireworks, movies on the beach, entertainment in oceanfront pavilions, and a slew of events all summer long, including rodeos, sand sculpting competitions, and New England’s largest seafood festival (Sept. 6-8). Pack your cooler, flip-flops, and T-shirts, and join the fun.
